Ann Goldstein Children’s Rainforest Garden Donor Preview Event

Marie Selby Botanical Gardens held a Donor Preview Event for the Ann Goldstein Children’s Rainforest Garden Thursday, Nov. 7.

Streams of green lights and musicians playing African musical instruments serenated guests as they entered the garden that had been transformed into a magical jungle for the evening. Guests mingled amongst each other, enjoying cocktails and hors d’oeuvres and exploring the grounds in which they made possible. Among those in attendance were distinguished benefactor donors Alfred Goldstein and Beverly Koski.

It was announced at the event that in honor of the donors, Selby Gardens contributed a gift to preserve 10,000 acres of rainforest habitat in South America.
